If you are a regular blog reader, you know I love yogurt (minus those days I may have been on a crazy diet where I couldn’t eat yogurt.) When I was asked to participate in a yogurt taste test, I jumped at the chance!
The Great Yoplait Taste-off! (pretty please click through for more information and to support me–this is a sponsored post but this sort of thing really helps me out! Of course, all opinions are my own and the campaign gave me the freedom to make my own decision.)
I was asked to have myself and friends compare Yoplait Greek 100 Strawberry Yogurt to Chobani Simply 100 Strawberry Yogurt. I’ve been a fan of both brands for awhile, so I figured this was a win-win for me.
All together in an artsy manner…
I decided the best thing was to put the yogurts in bowls.
I just had one friend help me with the taste test, so it was a blind test for him and I covered my eyes and let him feed me. (Yes, yogurt ended up on my chin. No, I didn’t take a picture.)
We did finish off both bowls after I opened my eyes.
So…we were supposed to pick our favorite, right?
They were almost too different to decide. Yes, both are 100 calorie Strawberry Greek Yogurt…but…they were totally different. I got his opinion before telling him what was what, but we both basically agreed on the following:
Yoplait: Sweeter, more fruity, more “dessert-like”.
Chobani: More subtle fruit flavor, creamier, more “yogurt” taste.
In my opinion, they were both tasty, and I would buy either again though maybe in different flavors as lemon is my go-to yogurt favorite—he said he’d probably only buy the Chobani as he doesn’t like the sweeter yogurts. I think if pressed we’d both say we liked Chobani better but honestly, I hate making decisions like that, and both were just different enough that it seemed too tough to decide!
Verdict of the taste-off: Chobani wins, but just barely. (I’m told that 4 out of 5 Americans preferred Yoplait though!)
(Disclosure statement: This taste test was sponsored by Yoplait, but I was given the creative freedom to honestly express my opinions. )
